Sheep or Goats? Found out they were Stone sheep & a Caribou

These are all  Stone Sheep from the Stone Mountain Provincial Park region of BC. Except the 2 pictures of caribou that got mixed in here by mistake. Goes to show you I am not really up on these types of animals. Check out http://www.yukoneh.com/watsonlake/alaskahwy/stonemountain.htm and http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/stone_mt/ for more information especially if you are considering visiting there area.

Also found this site and lots more info online: http://www.goabc.org/hunt-guide/?adventure=30 about these magnificent animals we have here in BC and the Yukon.

I guess one Dall sheep is making sure it all comes out ok.

About Hella

I am working on publishing all of my father, Henry E Prante's treasure trove of hunting adventure stories as well as his only novel. His first book, Great Hunting Adventures was first published in 1985 and is now available via e-book, from www.smashwords.com. Dad also saved all relevant material related to his work with the Port Coquitlam Hunting and Fishing Club and their involvement in the conservation movement and in saving the Coquitlam River and its tributaries for future generations. This part of BC history deserves to be preserved as well. Needless to say, it is a monumental task and will take some time. Henry also travelled through the Yukon in order to get to his beloved Atlin BC. I will endeavour to provide maps and links from Parks Canada or the towns up north and pictures my brother Ray takes on his trips north.

  1. Hard to see the horns on a couple, so maybe you may also have some mountain goats here. However, the critter with those big curved horns looks just like a Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep.
